Abstract

35S-Labeled thionucleosides prepared from Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa tRNAs were chromatographed separately on a phosphocellulose column with a linear salt gradient of 0.005–0.1 M ammonium formate (pH 3.9). The thionucleosides of E. coli tRNA were quantitatively separated into four peaks which were identified using authentic samples as 4-thiouridine (78 %), 2-methylthio-N6-isopentenyladenosine (8 %), 2-thiocytidine (2.5 %) and 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (11.5 %). In the case of P. aeruginosa tRNA four radioactive thionucleoside peaks were also observed. One major difference was the almost complete absence of 2-methylthio-N6-isopentenyladenosine and the presence of a new peak of radioactivity in the nucleosides of P. aeruginosa. The relative proportions of the various thionucleosides were found to be different in E. coli and P. aeruginosa tRNAs.
